Cadillac Escalade discount offers for the all-new, fifth-generation model continue to be sparse during September 2021, with no manufacturer incentives available whatsoever. That is in stark contrast to the situation throughout the majority of the 2020 calendar year, where the luxury marque offered up to $9,500 in cash back on units of the outgoing, 2020 model year Escalade.

The reason for the lack of 2021 Cadillac Escalade discount offers in September (and during prior months) is two-fold: demand for the Escalade is red hot, resulting in substantial gains in sales volume. That strong demand is compounded by short supply as a result of the ongoing microchip shortage. Hence, it’s almost unnecessary for Cadillac to incentivize sales of a product that’s in high demand yet short supply.
Cadillac completely overhauled the 2021 Escalade, placing it on an all-new platform, giving it an all-new exterior and interior, a revised trim level structure, and new powertrain options. Additionally, the full-size luxury SUV features exclusive, first-to-market technologies, including a curved Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) screen, the first AKG automotive audio system and Cadillac’s acclaimed Super Cruise driver assistance technology.

Who are these people shelling out $100,000.00+ for gussied up station wagons? There was a time when people were willing to spend more on supposedly better-built brands i.e. Cadillac, Lincoln, and Chrysler. Those days are gone. A Chevy is built just as good as a Cadillac. Glad I got off the insanity merry-go-round.
